Understanding and Applying Social Determinants of Aboriginal and Torres Islander Health

The Understanding and Applying Social Determinants of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health course will run on Feburary 9th and 10th, 2016.

This two-day short course introduces participants to frameworks for understanding social, economic, historical and cultural factors or determinants that underpin the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples with respect to their unique and diverse cultures.

This short course will explore how these factors contribute to the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous peoples health. The course will provide research case studies shown to be effective in improving health status through action on social determinants. Participants will learn how to apply a social determinants framework approach to their own work planning and practices.

People working in government, private sector, the not-for-profit sector and community agencies, research students and academics who work with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people or who have an interest in Indigenous health and economics will all benefit from this course.
